The use of Venn diagrams is introduced to a class of 13-year-old pupils by a sequence of tasks connected to a course in fractions and percentages. By using a teacher-guided problem sequence, the pupils are supposed to learn how to use Venn diagrams to solve problems. The sequence is designed to focus on the use of a new cognitive scheme including a new way to organize given information. The pupils are provided the possibility to think creatively, to work both in groups and individually, and also to be inspired by tasks related to real-world situations.
